Baystate Franklin Medical Center Maternity Statistics

In order to give you as much information as possible about the Birthplace, we have compiled the following data. The definitions given will help you understand the statistics and use the information so you can know what to expect, learn more about your choices, and plan for your baby’s birth.

 

Most of the numbers are percentages of all the deliveries at the hospital during a given year. For example, if one birth out of five is by cesarean section, the cesarean rate will be 20%. If half of births use the external electronic fetal monitor only, the number given will be 50%.

              

We encourage you to take childbirth preparation classes with us or schedule a tour so you can learn more about us!  Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding these statistics.  413-773-2253
